What is ZeroPay Cash Discount?
Accepting Card Payments Should Be Easy and Affordable!
We know that the ever-increasing credit card processing fees that businesses are paying is OUTRAGEOUS. We also know that business owners are tired of always having to negotiate lower pricing with their existing processing provider.
Our Zero Pay Cash Discount Program now provides business owners with a ‘permanent’ solution to virtually eliminate these over-bloated fees by giving their customers the ‘incentive’ to pay with CASH and receiving a CASH DISCOUNT. In doing so, businesses across the country are now eliminating 90-100% of their processing fees!
How It All Works
To help merchants to dramatically reduce processing fees, we pre-program our terminals and POS systems with our patented software to process customer cash and credit card payments. For customers who pay with cash, we will automatically apply a “cash discount” to the transaction. For card-paying customers, a small “service fee” is applied for the convenience of paying with a credit card. This service fee that you will collect will then offset your credit card processing rate that is applied to your account, thus eliminating most of your processing fees. All printed terminal receipts that your customer receives will reflect the cash discount or the service fee that is applied to each transaction.
Worried about losing business from card-paying customers? NO worries! Merchants also have the option of ‘toggling on or off’ their terminal if they do not want to apply the small service fee to any of their loyal card-paying customers.

What Our Customers Are Saying
“I’ve been using the Cash Discount program for 8 months and have saved over 80% on my monthly credit card processing bill. I was concerned about losing some customers, but they do not mind paying a small fee when they use their credit card. I have received few complaints.”
“Before I signed up, my credit card processing fees were very high. Now they are almost gone.
I also like that I can temporarily toggle off my terminal if a loyal customer of mine doesn’t want the small fee when they pay with a credit card. My customers keep coming back!”
“Customers don’t have any issues with the small $.79 service we charge. They know it is only pocket change and is less than ATM fees if they want to pay with cash.”
“At first I was skeptical, but I liked their 30-day No Risk policy to verify their services. There is no question we have received a big boost in our monthly sales revenues. We also eliminated over 90% of our credit card processing fees which increased our bottom line profits. I am here to stay.”

Why is the Cash Discount Program now available with Zero Pay?
For several years now, retail and restaurant business owners have fought with Visa and MasterCard to be allowed to charge customers a small service fee when paying with a credit card. Their main objective was to increase their profitability by minimizing the ever-increasing Visa/MasterCard processing rates that merchants pay when accepting credit cards. Visa/MasterCard previously allowed only certain industry types to implement a cash discount program. Many industry types such as gas stations, utilities, college-universities, courts, DMV, IRS and national-state-local governments have provided cash discounts for several years. Furthermore, cash discounting is widely used by merchants across Europe and Australia.
This battle has been successful and Visa & MasterCard now allows retail and restaurant establishments with the ability to offer discounts for cash purchases and to apply a small service fee for card-paying customers. This is based on the evolution of the Durbin Amendment and Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Act which was recently passed by the US Senate. This law now prohibits a payment card network such as Visa “from inhibiting the ability of anyone to provide a discount for payment by cash, checks, debit cards, or credit cards.”

I am afraid of losing customers to my competitors!
We initially had the same concerns, but from our analysis and feedback from current merchants utilizing our program (including retailers and restaurants), the complaint ratio is very low (under 3%).
There are (3) main reasons for this.
1) Customers like the convenience of paying with a credit card rather than carrying cash.
2) Customers like using their Reward Cards to earn the reward points when making purchases with these cards.
3) Customer don’t want the hassle of going to an ATM and paying high ATM fees (sometimes north of 5%) which in most cases, is more expensive than paying the smaller service fee when they use their credit card at your business.
Our merchants also know that their risk is limited compared to the thousands of dollars in processing fees that they will be eliminating.
At Zero Pay, we don’t want you to lose any customers and we have the SOLUTION!
If you are still concerned about losing customers, with the terminal or POS system we will provide, you will be able to quickly ‘toggle on or off’ the cash discount program that is pre-programmed in your terminal. Our toggling feature is available if you have a loyal customer that you don’t want to apply the service fee to and thus eliminate your concerns about losing these customers!
How do I explain the cash discount program to our customers?
The answer is very simple and not hard to understand. Merchants simply ask their customers the following: “Would you like to receive a discount by paying with cash or pay with a credit card?” The signage we provide to place at your counter will notify the customer of the discount they will receive if they pay in cash and the small service fee when they pay with their credit card. Basically, our merchants are telling their customers that this is not a FEE for paying with a credit card, but rather an ‘incentive’ to pay with CASH.
How do I decide between a flat per transaction fee and a percentage fee?
Zero Pay will set that up for you based on your average ticket size. For businesses with an average ticket below $25, we recommend a flat rate transaction fee ($0.50 to $0.90). Businesses with a larger average ticket ($25+), 3.95% works best. This process ensures that you cover as much of your processing costs as possible. Our cash discount program is especially effective for businesses that process small tickets with debit cards because their profit margins are more limited than businesses that process higher ticket transactions.
What if I have a large average ticket – the 3.95% service fee may be viewed as too high for my customers. Can I absorb some of that fee and still save money at the same time?
On a case by case basis, we will work with you to implement a hybrid solution where you charge a service fee of anywhere between 1-4% to your consumer and you.
Why does my credit card processing rate seem a little high?
We will set your processing rate below the service fee you will collect on credit card payments from your customer. This will insure that you are covering 90-100% of your credit card processing fees.
Visa and MasterCard allows merchants to pass through credit card processing fees with a maximum cap of 4%. This rate includes every single fee related to processing. Included in this rate is the transaction fee, batch fee, PCI compliance fee, statement fee, interchange pass-through fees, etc. Quite simply, you will pay minimal processing fees with our Cash Discount Program. Your processing rate is also locked in on your merchant account agreement, with NO increases. This allows you to know exactly what your fixed monthly processing cost will be.
What if I sign up and later on decide I don’t want to be on the Cash Discount Program?
No problem! If at any time you wish to go back to paying all of your processing fees, we can switch you to our ‘traditional’ pricing model at no cost. With our traditional pricing, we will even beat the rates you were paying with your old processor.
Why am I required to have signage disclosing the program?
The major card issuers (Visa/MasterCard/Discover/American Express) issued rules requiring that a visible disclosure be present in the business. If signage is not properly displayed in the business, you will be in violation of the card issuer rules and guidelines for participating in the program. Businesses who are in violation could be subject to penalties up to and including having your merchant account privileges revoked.
Why are Reward Cards making my processing fees increase each year?
When big brand stores partner with banks to issue Reward Cards, we continue to see an increase among these stores to provide better reward options. The bottom line is that merchants pay for these reward programs through their processing fees. The more that consumers use their reward cards, the more these rates will rise for these cards. We certainly do not try to discourage consumers from using reward cards, but merchants should understand that when they accept reward cards, the more processing fees they will pay. This is why our cash discount program is so effective for helping merchants to drastically reduce these fees.
Do I have to report the services fees collected on my annual IRS Form 1099-K?
No! Your annual 1099-K will only show the earned income on your sales and not include the service fee for easy bookkeeping.
